  4. The similarities between the collapse of the Soviet Union and the US collapse was so compelling that I read and now continue to re-read, and even study, various sections of Reinventing Collapse. It clearly articulates in a concise fashion some of the many ways that America is really in a worse situation than the Soviet Union. However of all of the critical areas that you have discussed, I find that security is the most critical. Let me be blunt, there are a lot of people living in America, who when impacted to the point of losing their jobs, homes, retirements etc., will be looking for someone to blame. On the other hand there will also be those who will welcome this as opportunity to add to the insanity during this free for all. Crime in large cities will go through the roof. I think the security risk though touched upon understates this problem in this ethnically diverse population with its history of unresolved racial baggage. I personally believe that people will perceive that they have legitimate grievances and fueled by existing levels of anger and contempt will more likely to blame someone other than someone who looks like them for their collective misery. This path of least resistance will be taken rather than the path which seeks to understand the real culprits in our government and in corporations. This includes a long list of people who had it and lost it all and those who never had anything and who see other people as the reason for that as well. Their will be others who will act and prey on people because they be perceived as part of the oppressor group. All groups have their own ideologies as to how things came to be, and I am sure racial tension will increase. So if as you say there tends to be more violence in the collapse of societies where there is more racial diversity, then reading between the lines we are talking about anything from unpretentious self imposed or imposed segregation which is sort of what many place have now, to race riots to ethnic cleansing. This is the banquet that awaits us, further aggrevated by America’s loss of national identity.
